The Society of Tea Devotees started in Prague, Czechoslovakia during the fall of communism during a time when high-quality tea was a valued commodity. The group of devotees would smuggle samples of rare Indian, Chinese and Japanese teas into their borders. The first Bohemian-style tearoom, Dobrá Čajovna, opened in 1993 in Prague. A decade later Dobrá Tea opened its first US tearoom in Burlington VT. Since then 5 other locations, including the Pittsburgh location, have been established across the East Coast.
Once a year the Society of Tea Devotees travel around the world to tea growing countries to find new varieties of teas and source all of their teas directly from their regions of origin. Since the society’s establishment, they have devoted themselves to offering high-quality teas to the masses.
